Evidence of pastor's ascension to Heaven was allegedly stolen

Evidence of pastor's ascension to Heaven was allegedly stolen April 13, 2016

On Easter Sunday, South African ‘prophet’ Paseka Motsoeneng, of the Incredible Happenings Church in Katlehong, went to Heaven where he was given permission by the Celestial Authorities to take photos of his visit with his expensive G-5 Galaxy cellphone.
According to this report, the ascension took place just after midday on Easter Sunday and was claimed to have been witnessed by church members from as far as afield as Tshwane and Limpopo.

On his return to Earth, Motsoeneng, aka Mboro, announced that the “selfies” he took while rolling around Heaven would be made available on a first-come, first-served basis to the public and church members for between £266 and £238 each.
But, several days later, as the week progressed, Motsoeneng, pictured above in one of his four luxury homes, suddenly withdrew his offer, claiming that the phone he used to take the pictures had been stolen when his vehicle was involved in an accident.
Meanwhile, the chairperson of the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL), Thoko Mkhwanazi-Xaluva, revealed that the Commission was planning to reinstate suspended criminal charges against Pastor Mboro, and yesterday she opened a case against Mboro for his failure to submit his outfit’s annual financial and bank statements showing how he makes and spend money.
Mkhwanazi-Xaluva described the pastor’s latest escapade as “ridiculous” and “another fundraising gimmick”.
She said:

We are monitoring the so-called heaven selfies as this is nothing but extortion and commercialisation of religion. We are going to issue him with a subpoena for the selfies.

She added that Mboro’s utterances about descending to heaven were “blasphemous” and the Commission cannot allow him to continue to mock Christianity.

You cannot reduce Jesus Christ to an ordinary person. Jesus’ name can’t be used in vain. Christianity needs to be respected and we cannot allow him to turn Christianity into a circus. It’s not a playground.  I don’t know whether this was an April Fool’s joke or what. But he must go and make such jokes somewhere else.

In 2015 the "prophet" announced on Facebook that he has been nominated for South African Community Developer of the year, and asked people to vote for him.

Prophet Favour Stephens, Secretary General of the South African Union Council of Independent Churches (SAUCIC) has accused Mboro of running a “cult” and she has urged his followers to abandon the Incredible Happenings Church, which she says does not follow the basic principles of Christianity.

He calls himself a Christian but his church is a cult. People must stop going to his church.

The celebrity pastor is no stranger to controversy. In 2013, according to this report, he was charged with sexually harassing and assaulting women and young girls. Then it was claimed he paid a teacher to fake an illness so he could appear to “cure” her.
It’s also been claimed he undresses and touches women’s private parts while praying for them. No true, he said.

Why would I touch those biscuits (vaginas)? Most of them are foul-smelling.

He claimed he respected women and said that instead of touching them with his hand, he would put his foot on the area between their stomachs and “biscuits” when they lay on the floor – but he would only touch a woman’s “biscuit” if she asked him to touch it because she wanted to be healed.
